Your journey will be guided by Yoga Pura founder and best-selling author Eric Walrabenstein, a master teacher, who has been called one of the most insightful translators of yogic wisdom of our time.
In 2012, after over 20 years of teaching, Eric was bestowed the rare title of Yogacharya (Preceptor of Yoga) making him one of only a few ordained Yogacharyas in the nation.
You’ll benefit from his nearly 30 years of practice, study, and teaching and learn how to put yoga’s most powerful wisdom to work to improve every corner of life from the personal to the professional and, of course, the spiritual.
His unique process will lead you first on your own process of yogic transformation, and then teach you how to expertly lead others to do the same.
During his career, Eric has trained over 1,000 yoga and meditation teachers all across the country; teachers who are right now successfully teaching classes, operating yoga studios, leading their own yoga teacher training programs, and of course, living happier and more fulfilled lives.
In addition to his work at Yoga Pura, Eric has helped thousands of our troops and veterans heal from post-traumatic stress with his BOOTSTRAP yoga stress-management program and is now working to combat the addiction crisis with a new yoga-based approach to recovery.
Eric’s work has been widely featured in the media including on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, SUCCESS Magazine, and Yoga Journal.
